Whatever Became of Me?
So, we crawled out of bed at six this morning to drive thirty miles into town. The local morning anchor at WMBB Television wanted to do a personality piece on Maggie and me for his Sunday night show… 7:30 a.m. at McKenzie Park, downtown Panama City. It was fun, and nice of them to ask us. Never turn down publicity, especially good publicity.
Maggie’s song, Banshee, was used in a play that opened in NYC in August, and now the same song is the title track of an independent film from Oregon making the rounds of festivals.
My agent has my latest novel, also in NYC, and we wait to hear from him. My first novel, A Thousand Bridges, is now out of print, but will be released digitally soon on CD Baby’s newest delivery – Book Baby. They’ll convert it to all downloadable formats, as soon as I get the manuscript to them.
Thing is, when I wrote that book, I did it on an IBM Executive typewriter. No copy on my computer, so I’m having to re-type the entire book first. Good practice, I guess.
We have a brand new CD called Into the Night, and we hope to have all the post production finished in less than two weeks. One of the good things about being a duet with no desire for midi, machines or sidemen. 14 original songs that we hope to premier here on No Depression, as soon as I figure out how to do that as well.
Everything has a learning curve, even after sixty four years. This is a delightful place to spend time, and I love reading everything and listening to all this great new music. Sometimes I wake up too early or stay up too late and grumble, piss and moan on this site, but this time I just want to say thanks for being here.
As soon as I get caught back up on everything, I hope to be back among you.
